    Dwayne Johnson Posts First Look At Fast & Furious Spin-Off Series

    Just when we thought it would be a long time before the next Fast and the Furious sequel happens, here’s lead star Dwayne Johnson putting our hopes up for an offshoot of the film. 

    On Wednesday, “The Rock” took to Instagram to reveal the first sneak-peek at his Fast and Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw. The action star posted a photo of him and co-lead Jason Statham to excite the fans on the movie that’s set to hit the cinemas in 2019.

    Havin’ A Blast

    Johnson is portraying the role of Luke Hobbs while Statham will do Deckard Shaw. On the social media post, the retired wrestler wrote:

    “FIRST LOOK: HOBBS & SHAW. We either gonna get along or we gonna get it on,” Johnson captioned the photo. “F–k getting along.”

    Apparently, the stars of the movie are in the early phase of filming and are fancying the process. Continuing, Johnson said:

    “Great first week of shooting our Fast & Furious spin-off, HOBBS & SHAW with my ace @jasonstatham. We’re havin’ a blast disrupting the norm to deliver something fresh, cool, fun and badass for the fans.”

    Hobbs and Shaw

    However, English actor and film producer Statham hit the tarmac first, posting a preview on working on the spinoff in September. It was a photo of his behind-the-scenes talk with film director David Leitch.

    “Getting the instructions from an old pal and the director of our film @davidmleitch, Massive respect to you Dave for the incredible vision and scope you have planned for this movie. There are big things to come!”

    “The other big thing to come will be arriving imminently, that’s if he can peel himself away from his stack of pancakes. My partner in crime on this one, the colossal and worldwide loved and respected @therock  Just warming things up for you brother! See you on British soil soon. #HobbsAndShaw @universalpictures.”

    Despite that, not everyone seemed to display enthusiasm on the film planned back in April of last year. Tyrese Gibson recently ended up in a public feud against The Rock and stressed his opposition to the spinoff; saying Fast and the Furious stars shouldn’t ‘fly solo.’

    Nevertheless, Hobbs and Shaw is set to be released in August 2019.
